President – Allan Ede

Messrs. Lawrence and Baxter persuaded me to join the IMPS in 1984 after many years with them in jeep trips, and the early days of Tenterden and Beltring, but it was another nine years before I bought my own 1944 Ford jeep. In 1994 I took over as Club Secretary until 1997 when I was elected Chairman for five years, then President twice and I returned for another four years as Vice Chairman in 2011. For many years I organised the military vehicle displays at the Biggin Hill Air Fair; took over running the annual Frostbite Run in 2004; have been on the organising team for the Combined Ops Show, in addition to writing my regular ‘Highway Patrol’ pages in Imprint. The reward for all this has been the huge amount of good IMPS friends and thousands of jeep miles.

Chairman – Nick Cowles

My military vehicle interest started with the Kent Army Cadet Corps in the early 70’s, being transported in Bedfords and Landrovers. Later I began military vehicle kit building where I met Tony Lawrence, James Baxter and Allan Ede. A trip in Tony and James’s Jeeps to Duxford and Thruxton in 1980 started the real ache to own my own WW11 Jeep. I attended the first War and Peace shows at Tenterden as a guest/spectator.

Vice Chairman – Ross Savage

Having been a member of Imps for. 15 years I felt it was my turn to give something back to the club by becoming a committee member to help in what ever way I could to take the club forward in these changing times. My initial entry into green machines was via a Lightweight Land-rover, progressing to a Jeep, a Defender and a Minerva plus a number of assorted trailers and tents. I enjoy the social side of the club and particularly attending the many events. Lets keep the wheels and tracks turning.

Secretary – Lynne Tatam

I like green clothes!

Company Secretary – Andrew Partridge

I have been a member of IMPS since 1990 and Company Secretary, responsible for our public records at Companies House for most of the time since IMPS became a limited company in 2001. Since 1993 I have owned a Humber Heavy Utility, my only military vehicle.  I have been an active member of the Board and participant in the shows in past years and hope to be more active in the coming one.”

Membership Secretary – Peter Tatam

I like green trucks!

Treasurer – Roger Stone

I have been interested in military vehicles for as long as I can remember and after living in Normandy during the 50th anniversary of D-Day celebrations, decided that one day I would have to have a Jeep. After being Jeepless at both the 60th and 70th celebrations (and a few in between), I finally achieved my ambition and now have a 1944 Willys. Having acquired a Jeep, it seemed sensible to join IMPS. In my short time with the society, I have met some terrific people and been made to feel very welcome, so I have every intention of being in Normandy in June 2019 with my many new friends – and my Jeep.

Events Secretary & Webmaster – Gareth Wear

I am relatively new to the military vehicle scene going to my first War and Peace Revival in 2013 where I discovered what a great bunch of folks these enthusiasts were. I bought a jeep, joined IMPS and the rest, as they say, is history.
